“Church Sends Aid to Kosovo,” Ensign, May 1999, 117
To assist ethnic Albanians forced to flee the Serbian province of Kosovo, the Church sent emergency supplies to neighboring Macedonia. About 3,000 “family boxes” of food and soap were transported by air and about 200,000 pounds of clothing, blankets, and hygiene kits were sent by sea.
The Church relocated 14 single missionaries and a missionary couple from Belgrade, Yugoslavia, to Croatia. “Our anxiety now is for the 100 or more members who reside in Serbia,” said Elder Jeffrey R. Holland of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles.
